Strong earthquake hits Vanuatu in Pacific

A strong earthquake rattled Vanuatu in the southern Pacific on Wednesday, the U.S. Geological Survey reports.

The epicenter for the magnitude 6.6 quake was about 72 miles west of Isangel at a depth of 31 kilometers (19 miles).

There were no immediate reports of damage. No tsunami warning was issued.

A stronger earthquake struck the island Sunday.

    I've been keeping track of news articles on major weather and earthquake events for several years now and this year has been unlike any other when it comes to the magnitude and number of sizable quakes.

    it probably was from the under-ground network of tunnels and bases in which the aliens and humans are working on the hybrid – black-ops program ,, they're conducting all types of freakish experiments especialy with enginered natural disaster technologys which are being carried out against the world populace.......

    @Friend...everything you've ever posted is archived and retrievable. Try and google statements you've made online in the past. They are all still here in cyberworld. The law of common sense would allow for this. You post it, it becomes part of the public domain.
